Wool Wednesday Update Finally and 4 Weeks of What???

Whewwwwww, I've been teasing wool for the last three days for a special order in my Etsy Shop and my poor fingers are beginning to look a bit like hamburger and I have a nasty blister too!! Thanks goodness I'm almost done!! Okay so finally the cooler weather is here which with that comes Fall and Halloween yippeeeeee!! So that means it is time to dive back in to Wool Wednesday, whooo hooo. Mark those calendars as we are back on track starting Next Wednesday, October 13th!! I can't wait!! PS, wait to see my surprise, hummmm I may be feeling a new challenge coming your way.....
I can't believe it has been 4 weeks since I posted last, where does the time go!!!!

Well, some of it went here. I've been crocheting lots of these little Basket Bowls.

Oh and something new for me...
I totally fell in love with this!!

"Jazzy Blues"

I have been Hand Dyeing my own buttons for my Etsy Shop!!

"Purple Passion"

Oh yeah, did I mention buttons!!
Buttons, buttons and more BUTTONS, lol!!!

Believe it or not, hanging my head in shame here....

All of these buttons are from my own PERSONAL STASH, yes....

and of coarse I have more, ummmm, a few food storage bags full, a small sandwich bag, a canning jar and two 5 gallon ice cream buckets full, well you never know what one your gonna need when your making crocheted decorative pot holders... I love buttons, I have since I was a kid. I loved to play with Grandma's Button Tin, ooooooooo...My grand kids take right after their grammy, they have a great big bowl of buttons sitting on the coffee table here that they love to play with.

Okay, can we say I have a real crafting problem..

So yes, I have begun DE STASHING and listing my over abundance stash in my shop.
I hope it is good therapy for my CCD (crafting compulsive disorder, hehehehe).
Okay, now one of my little secrets is out of the bag, believe me when I say you haven't seen nothing yet, hahahahahaha. Did I mention my surprise, ummmm all 44 pounds of it, hahahahahaha, bet your scared now huh, hahahahahahaha.
See ya here again soon or at least by next Wednesday!!!
Happy Wednesday!!


  1. I am soooo glad that you are back!! And wool Wednesday too! I love the purple buttons, they are gorgeous. I thought that I had issues with buttons, but you have shown me that I do NOT have any issues with buttons! When I seen the first picture I thought you were at a fair or a craft store, wow! Your little baskets are so cute. Glad to see you back, it's been four very long weeks! Looking forward to Wednesday!


  2. Brenda! I have missed you! Ooooh, I do love buttons. It's a terrible addiction - lol! And I am ALMOST ready to sit down and try some art dolls and use that fabulous wool I got from you. What kind of dyes do you use on your wool? I might want to dye some black (I can see DISASTER printed on this idea, lemme tell you!). Have a great button-filled day! xox
